Neuromuscular Research Foundation Trust

The Neuromuscular Research Foundation Trust (NRFT) is accepting funding applications for research relevant to New Zealanders living with neuromuscular conditions. Grants of up to $30,000 are available.  The NRFT is also offering two postgraduate student scholarships of $5000.

Proposals which address the prevalence and incidence of neuromuscular conditions and standards of care will be given first priority, although proposals which extend existing research into treatment and cures will also be considered.

Research of a preliminary nature with the intention of developing further proposals for substantial financial support from elsewhere is likely to be favoured.

Closing date for applications is 30 September each year and we hope to advise the outcome by the 1 December.
